    I have been working at eQ Technologic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Slightly above-average pay. - Open office environment and central location in the city. - The dress code is casual. - The work machine is good and has an additional monitor as well. - People are knowledgeable. - NGO has been set up for social causes. - The CEO is inspirational and managers are technology-oriented.

    Cons

    - Tech stack is legacy and most projects are just maintenance, - No onsite opportunities for developers. - No budget for innovations within the company. - The appraisal process is not transparent. One-on-one meetings never happen. - Lack of work-life balance in many teams. - An antivirus software slows down productivity a lot. - Absence of code style, tests, and best practices and coding culture. - No compensatory off/pay for extra work. - Passionate engineers are not included in the best projects. - Parking and food are issues that are still not solved. - Lack of up-skilling efforts like tech course/book reimbursement. - No cab facility for employees working late. - Management feedback system is not established. - Health insurance is not adequate and cannot be extended to a good amount.

    I worked at eQ Technologic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Just one - Great location

    Cons

    1. Technology - They are still using the Stone age technologies to maintain the application. So even if you're getting lots of work, it will be always outdated. 2. Compensation - Decent salary structure. Low basic pay which in turn affects HRA, PF, Gratuity, Employer Contribution. 3. Entertainment - No entertainment at all, just work work work. 4. Parking - This company is in Pavilion Mall Pune and has very limited parking slots. If you're late, park it anywhere. 5. Work from Home - No laptop and hence there is no facility of working from home. Even in Corona epidemic we were in office. 6. Management - Very very very poor management, we felt so bad when our senior manager asked to stay late till 12-1 AM even during the corona epidemic. It was shocking ! 7. Flexibility - No work flexibility, if they ask you to check-in your task today that means no matter what it is, you're check-in should happen. This review is purely related to MI team - full stack developer role.

    "eQube-MI team and manager is the worst you could work with or under & the leads are useless and spineless Yes-Men."

    I worked at eQ Technologic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only thing good about eQ Technologic is its salary structure, annual bonus and hikes. Also there is no office timing constraint as such but if you're well loaded with work, it won't be of much benefit to you.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no sense of professionalism at all. 1. To begin with all the discussions in the meeting rooms or on the phones are generally started in Marathi considering the fact that it's a company which hires from colleges in and around Pune. Lateral joiners who don't know the language end up being so proficient in it that they understand all of it or maybe speak a bit too than learning anything relevant to their skills to enhance their technical acumen. 2. Not sure about the culture in eQube-BI or MAT but if you’re being hired for eQube-MI or eQubeMI-GMP, you’re doomed for sure. a. The manager is a dictator and all his leads\subordinates are absolute Yes-Men. Even if you’re right and have a valid point you’ll be asked to do what he likes no matter how ridiculously impractical it sounds or looks. b. In the meeting room if you’ve gone to present an idea and God forbid if you’re wrong and have missed a scenario which is absolutely human, you’ll be laughed at by the manager and all his Yes-Men. Not only you’ll feel humiliated but you’ll not care to come up with any idea to contribute ever. Leads are absolutely spineless too, because your lead who’s heard the idea first, was pretty convinced before presenting it to others and couldn’t spot the missed case himself will absolutely disown you, forget about taking your side. You’re on your own and your lead’s look towards you in front of everyone will be as if you’ve gone against his wish to present it. The same impression will be given to the manager that he’s not even aware of it and has no say in it. c. Stories which have no significance to the discussion will be told in the meetings by the manager. Throughout you’ll realize that the story is told just to pass some sarcastic comment on you which is nothing but humiliation and disgust. d. The manager has a use and throw approach towards his people. If you’re genuinely in need and ask for “Work for Home” for a few days, they won’t bother to give you an ear if you’re not that crucial to the project at that time. On the other hand if you’ve dependency on you, the manager\CTO will be ready to give you their own laptops so that you could login from home and work. e. You won’t be given your fair share of respect and your time won’t be even valued. People stay late in office because the manager stays till late. Even if you come in at 9 AM and leave at 6 PM, take only one 20 minutes break in between and are seriously working the entire day, you’re considered unprofessional, unproductive and non-serious towards your job just because you left on time whereas those who come in at 1 PM, leave at 9 PM after the boss or with the boss so that they could butter him up till the parking are considered more hardworking and are given all the appreciations and respect.

    I have been working at eQ Technologic

    Pros

    Good starting salary as compared to other companies. Work life balance is good (only in few teams)

    Cons

    No personal development. There is very little scope for technical growth as well as personality development. Upper management is busy in making money and middle management is busy playing politics. There is no work from home policy. Only lead and above level employees get a laptop, as if it is some kind of privilege. Company had no Business Continuity Plan for situations like spread of COVID-19. If you have company laptop and want to take WFH, you need to take approval from reporting manager, HR head and Finance head. Still VERY privileged employees!!! Most of the work force is still expected to come to office. Some employees were even made to work over the weekend just for a build. For eQ, company laptop is a more valuable company asset than their employee. It makes me very sad as I quote a former eQ employee, "eQ is nothing but a MODERN SLAVERY!"
